The past couple of months have been very good fishing out of Manta/Ecuador with a very solid blue marlin bite. Lots of blue and striped marlin are feeding in the coastal water off of Ecuador and especially off the coast of Manta. The water is warming up in the Galapagos Islands and with it will come the blue marlin, black marlin and tuna.
Nov 17, 2018– Isabela went 1/3 on blue marlin and 1/3 on striped marlin. Solo Mia went 2/4 on blue marlin and 2/3 on striped marlin.
Golfito 0/3 on blue marlin. Telita 2/4 on blue marlin and 1/1 on wahoo.
Nov 18, 2018– Titagao went 0/3 on blue marlin 1/1 on sailfish and 0/1 on striped marlin
Captain Nicolass Schiess has been hammering the striped marlin onboard Tesoro Galapagos out of Santa Cruz Island and raising double digit striped marlin on some days. Seas have been a bit rough lately but we are at that transition time of the year and calm water should be only a few weeks away. Water temperature is averaging 77 F and with that we begin to welcome the blue and black marlin which should be showing up in force. Most boats are having their yearly maintenance done and crews are preparing tackle.
